BUENOS AIRES - Estudiantes captain Juan
Sebastian Veron will have surgery on a heel injury on Sunday and
miss the rest of the Argentine season, the club's doctor Hugo
Montenegro said on Tuesday.
"After completing tests with a new scan... we saw the muscle
was quite weak so we're going to operate, (do) an arthroscopy of
the heel," Montenegro told reporters.
Former Argentina midfielder Veron, plagued by the problem in
his right heel for some time, will be out for up to two months,
missing the last five matches of the Clausura championship.
